Cooling Tower Notifications

Cooling Tower Notifications 

Why do I need to make a notification?

Under the Notification of Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condensers Regulations 1992, you must notify Daventry District Council, if you have a cooling tower or evaporative condenser on site, and include details about where it is located.
You must notify us if your commercial site uses a cooling tower or evaporative condenser unless:

  • it contains no water that’s exposed to air;

  • its water supply is not connected; and

  • its electrical supply is not connected.

How do I make a notification?

Please contact us via email or phone. 

If you make any changes to your cooling tower or evaporative condenser, you must tell us about them in writing immediately.


There is no fee for the notification.


Application process 

Please contact us via email or phone to start the application process.

Does tacit consent apply if I do not hear anything after 28 days?

Yes, as long as your application was complete, correctly served and we are not waiting for you to send us further information. This means that you will be able to act as though your application is granted if you have not heard from us within 28 days of a full application being submitted.
